Electrosoft CEO Dr. Sarbari Gupta Shares 5 Things You Need to Thrive as a Woman Founder February 7, 2024

“Specifically for women, entrepreneurship offers the opportunity to apply the management skills developed across a lifetime and bring different values and perspectives to the workplace. It is vitally important that a diversity of voices contribute to and influence the business world. Plus, having more women founders will serve to inspire other women of this generation — and those to come — that anything is possible regardless of sex, race, or any other factor.”

That’s the lede from a recent interview with our CEO, Dr. Sarbari Gupta, who shared “Five Things You Need To Thrive and Succeed as a Woman Founder” with Authority Magazine’s Doug Noll.

Noll interviewed Dr. Gupta as part of a series about women founders, noting that “With Electrosoft’s 2001 founding, Dr. Gupta entered a highly competitive, male-dominated market. Today, her firm stands among the Washington, DC region’s Top 25 Largest Cybersecurity Companies and Largest Women-Owned Businesses. Dr. Gupta is a prolific writer and speaker who always finds the time to be a mentor and role model to women and girls of all ages.”

In the interview, Noll explores her journey to becoming an entrepreneur, stories that punctuate milestones along the way, and what it takes to be a successful woman founder and entrepreneur.
